I knew the day would come,
When we would have to say goodbye,
But as you always told us,
Our love will never die.
As the seasons change,
And time passes on,
Remember me with joyfulness,
And our unbreakable bond.
I’m always in your heart,
Just a memory away,
Do not mourn for me my child,
Remember the good ole days.
- Katt Behrens
